Bolton Wanderers manager Phil Parkinson will not step down from his position at The Macron Stadium despite his side’s exceptionally poor start to the season according to The Bolton News.

The Trotters returned to the Sky Bet Championship at the first attempt after winning promotion from the third tier of English football last season but they have struggled to make the step up this term.

Wanderers have failed to win any of their first 11 league matches this season while they have collected just two points. A real alarming statistic is that the Lancashire club have lost all of their last eight matches in all competitions without scoring a single goal.

The pressure is understandably rising on Wanderers boss Parkinson with fans being very concerned at the club’s current league position however the 49-year-old believes that he still has the full backing of the board and will continue to battle on to turn his side’s fortunes around.

Despite the lack of wins at The Macron Stadium this season, Parkinson’s overall record as Bolton Wanderers manager is a positive one. The former Bradford City boss has taken charge of The Trotters on 68 occasions and has won 30 of those matches resulting in a healthy win rate of 44.1%.
